Is this the game where you can interact a few stuff in a castle/laboratory (like push this and that) in order to progress? I've played the Sega Genesis and SNES Mickey Mouse games but I don't remember if that's the game that has what I described.
For whatever reason, we haven't ever seen a NES or SNES title emulated on the Xbox Live Arcade or PlayStation Network, despite numerous examples in previous generations (like the Mega Man X collection) while we've seen examples of PSOne emulation (Castlevania SOTN) on XBLA. It's legal to emulate this sort of thing now, but nobody seems to have done it.
Mostly because just putting a game up on Virtual Console or PSOne Classics is less work than creating your own emulator to port NES, SNES, or PS1 games and modifying the code to remove Nintendo or Sony references. You will notice that the output of PS1 ports on XBLA amounts to the aforementioned SotN, and that the few ports of SNES games on other systems generally weren't good ports. Hell, the ports of Genesis games generally weren't good ports until the Virtual Console and the Vintage Collection. NES ports on other systems appear to work fine though again, it is generally easier to just let Nintendo put it up on the Virtual Console.
In addition, there seems to be only two companies willing to port old games to other platforms... Backbone and M2. If you want an old game on another system outside of the VC and PSOne Classics, you've got to go through one of them.
Speaking of which, it's so disappointing Junction Point closed. Sure, the Epic Mickey games may have fell a bit flat, but Spector clearly had vision. Had he be given another chance, I think he'd eventually create a killer app... Still, I'm glad for the games they managed to publish. All three of them are sort of good in their own right, even if they are not perfect games. I think they'll age well, eventually.
Anyway, this is great news. Would rather see the game mobile or on 3DS, but I'll be good with the Wii U version. Bring it on, Disney!
I admit it's mostly nostalgia for me. But the game looks like a cartoon, and the concept is fantastic. The difficulty spikes are atrocious! First you're on a simple tutorial level (Steamboat Willie), and then, exploding skeletons, whose every bone causes fatal harm.
The recent Sonic CD re-release was *sort of* a remake, and that was pretty good. I really wouldn't expect anything on the level of that Wayforward Duck Tales remake, but considering Backbone are out of the equation you're probably going to at least get a decent port of the original.
